I would like to take a moment to thank Dr. Shah for getting my brother back on his feet. About one year ago I sent my brother to Dr. Shah for low back pain with numbness down his right leg. Dr. Shah conservatively treated him for approximately 1 year, until my brother made the decision to undergo surgery. His outcome was just amazing! As an Anesthesia provider, who has worked on both sides of the bridge, I could have sent my brother anywhere. I am most pleased to say we chose Dr. Shah!

Dr. Shah has been my doctor for six years. He has performed three surgeries that have improved my overall quality-of-life because of cervical spine herniations. What I found fascinating was he used cutting edge technology. Because I'm fused from my c3-c7 with both anterior and posterior surgeries with my full range of motion still intacted. He used the D-track system as a newer alternative for my posterior surgery that left two tiny holes instead of a 6-12 month massive open surgery. Thanks!

I am more than pleased with my surgery thanks to Dr. Shah. I suffered back pain for a year and various opinions from a few different doctors. I went to Shah he was very informative. He and his staff made me feel at ease from the office visit as well as in the hospital. The surgery Dr. Shah performed on my back is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I no longer have back pain and can chase my twin 5 year old twin girls around. Thank you Dr. Shah, what a life saver!

I suffered from chronic back pain due to an injury to my lower back. My quality of life was at a low due to my depression and weight gain because of my inability to be active. I met Dr.Shah for a consulting interview,at this point he was very interested and straight forward about his approach to repairing my back. He mane me feel very comfortable about my desision with proceeding with surgery. Dr.Shah preformed a anterior lumbar and a cervical fusion for me. Dr. Shah saved my life

Dr. Shah was straight forward and honest about the extent of my injury. I had immediate relief in my back after a successful surgery, and have not had pain even a year after. My life is back to normal and I'm back to being active without any complications.

Dr Shah gave me my life back!! I was in significant pain and had decreased mobility and poor posture prior to lumbar surgery. Now, I have FREEDOM!! No pain meds in a year since my surgery!! Dr Shah is a true professional, highly skilled and very pleasant.

Dr. Shah performed herniated disc back surgery on my wife. I attended visits with her before and after the surgery. As result, had opportunity to meet and speak with Dr. Shah. Dr. Shah was very clear and specific with explanations of the surgery pre and post operation. He did an outstanding job on the surgery and she is recovering well. His mannerism is one of thoughtfulness and kind consideration. This in addition to being a very good surgeon as evidenced by wife's recovery. Thanks Dr Shah.

Dr.Shah performed surgery on my back. L5-S1 lumbar laminectomy discectomy was the surgery he performed. When I recovered from surgery I felt like a whole person again. He is a great Dr. And I would refer him to others. He has a very nice patient-dr. Personality. He is very patient and takes his time going over procedures. I would recommend Dr.Rahul Shah as an orthopedic Surgeon. Thank you,Dr.Shah.

He has rushed through a back surgery and caused complications. Too quick to suggest surgery. May have caused permanent damage. Wants to white wash damage. Time , will tell. Would not recommend if only dr. Practicing.

Dr.shah did major back surgery on me and if it wasn't for him my back would be much worse he is the best at what he does very intelengent Dr. and really cares about his patients if anyone has back problems I strongly suggest you go to see Dr.shah without a doubt my name is Thomas Gonzalez and I'm witness to his phanamonal work kudos to Dr.shah and premier and Dr.Kimberly Smith

I don't think he really listened to what my problems were. My first visit was quite fast.. He told to have a MRI done and reccommended surgery right away.I just didn't have a clear understanding of what he was saying. I will go back to him again to get a better understanding of what is exactly going on. I'm willing to try it again and go from there.
